Our guide, Mark, was extremely knowledgable regarding flora, fauna, geologic and all other aspects of the tour. He could sight wildlife way before we could see them. Setting up the scope at each stopping point was done quickly and accurately. We could get much closer views of the wildlife by this means. Also, Mark would record videos of animal groups at each stop and share them with us later. We saw Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Moose, a Bald Eagle and, most important, a mother Grizzly and her two COYs. What an experience! This tour made our entire trip worth the expense, and we can't wait until we take the Yellowstone tour with BrushBack. We would unequivocally recommend this tour.

Tour guides, Jeff & Carrie, were very knowledgeable about Yellowstone Park and all the wildlife within. We were there early April and unexpected snow falll kept some roads closed so we didn’t see entire park but The guides were keyed in on finding as many attractions and animals as possible. They made sure we saw as much as we could and had an unforgettable experience! Highly recommend this tour company!
